very true, the figure of 684 is quite possibly lower than the actual figure

The only thing we can believe for sure in the News of the Screws are the football results and the date.

Hey now elderly Jedi, less of the 'plaid wearers'...

'Cofusious say man who wears plaid (as in kilt like attire) has no need to worry about catching anatomy parts in zip'

Or are you referring to what is sometimes called a 'Rural smoking jacket'?

That is very good. I'm rather embarrassed to say that it took me a few moments to get it, but quick wit was never a prerequisite for an accountant.

Anyway, it is an axiom of business planning that you cannot assume any variable will remain constant beyond a very limited time scale. Hence the only this you can be sure of is that change will occur. I would be much happier if it was deep, meaningful, oxymoronic and Zen phrasic.

Or is it ironing?

Don't make irony sound like something you need to squat to do and bury up on a mountain side. Too much of it - and you won't be regular.

I am providing this purely to show the consequences and what the result it of the uncontrolled immigration in the UK. A BBC report on the effect on the health service.

Draw your own conclusions and dont assume mine for me.


Thanks

Will you forgive my giggling at this paragraph?

"At the Thistlemoor Medical Centre, births among patients have increased 33% in just two years. GP Nalini Modha fears the authorities have not planned for the new arrivals."

You may not be forgiven.

Which ones were funnier? I liked this one because it reminded me of a more innocent time, a time before EU expansion, a time when colonials were the problem.

I knew it!! This confirms all my suspicions. Thanks for those two great articles.
From these, I safely conclude that whenever you see any of the foreigners that are swarming into the country smiling, they have (most probably) recently had unprotected rumpy-pumpy - and as a result, we could probably expect a future tax-payer to be born somewhere in the country in about nine months.
